    Hi Dalem9 and group, Thanks for your so prompt reply,
    I've often thought that 1/2 and 3/4 scales were harder to work on than the larger. You certainly have a great finish and sizing in your parts,
    Have done one 1" scale and some 1.1/2 locos. Here is a photo of my last. The loco is an enlarged to 1.1/5 scale version of Kozo's Heisler.
    Bot obviously the boiler had to be done from scratch,

    More picture of the head light and marker lights .Parts for the steam dome . I am going to try casting the other parts for the steam and sand domes when the weather get warmer . Cost way to much to buy the brass to make them . So far no luck in making the number boards .

    Nice work, did you have a drawing or dimensions for your headlight. I need to make one, but have only a couple photos and know they were 19 inch full scale. Any info you could share, would be appreciated.

    I’ve said it before but wow, this is fantastic work.

    By the way how many of those size gages have you spent so far?
